MARCY CATCHES UP by Rosamond du Jardin


Email this review


Teen age flummery, but there's an authenticity here in the attitude towards home and family, dating and boy friends, marriage and careers that carries its dependable appeal with the young teens. Marcy and her friend Liz are invited by Liz' uncle to spend August on his Colorado ranch. Marcy has quarreled with her ""steady"", Steve Judson, and in a moonstruck whirl of excitement over Colorado, has her moment of glamor over a 19-year old rancher. But home thoughts win out and there's some healthy self-analysis in Marcy's critical looking at her youth that saves this from being too obvious pandering to the soap opera crowd....Not tops in teen fiction, but essentially readable.
